Which silly John Scalzi face should I model in the 3D scanner?

It's all part of this most worthy fundraiser to help with the treatment and expenses from Jay Lake's cancer.

Scalzi has produced an array of astounding googie faces, and now there is a poll to pick the one I am to recreate in 3D-scanned glory. Vote away! Read the rest
